Hydrotherapy Pool - Dorset

This is a work in progress SIPS Build in the heart of Dorset. Tucked away in a beautiful setting, BWF supplied a SIPS frame for the Hydrotherapy Pool. EPDM Rubber Roof System, Kiln Dried Siberian Larch cladding with Rational windows and doors.

The internal SIPS has a vapour barrier, to provide a relevant insulation protecting the SIPS from any moisture that is generated from the Hydrotherapy pool. Final images to follow as it finishes completion.

To Clad or Not to Clad...

You will notice more and more houses are being Timber clad. Whether it’s the gable end of a 50s bungalow or the front elevation of a new build, timber cladding is making a strong come back, but why?
Wooden cladding has many benefits and unlike other exteriors, if properly maintained, it can last for upwards of 30 years, it also makes for a fantastic contemporary Scandinavian look. The benefits of using high quality imported timber such as Canadian Western Red Cedar or Kiln dried Siberian Larch, is that it contains natural anti decay and rot properties and provides low future maintenance. If left untreated the timber will naturally silver down .If you want to retain the colour of the timber you can coat it in a UV protective oil and it’s a bit like us putting on a sun cream as it stops the timber going silver in the UV rays ! Cladding also doubles up as a great insulator. Timber has high insulation properties; it helps to sustain energy resources on the planet and saves you money over time! Cladding also works as a great acoustic barrier due its excellent sound absorption properties.
Innovative products to the market make cladding your house a solid investment, take for instance Thermowood D which was launched in the 90’s .Thermowood D is a Finnish pine or spruce timber which is thermally modified making it more stable than untreated softwood. The heat treatment changes the chemical make-up of the timber so it is less able to absorb moisture. This restriction of moisture movement limits any potential for swelling, shrinkage or distortion and makes for a very stable lightweight timber.
Timber cladding is an “on trend” yet classic product which is seeing a massive resurgence in popularity and from cladding small sections to update your existing home to a complete cladding project on a new build, the process will certainly increase your house’s curb appeal!

Why Choose SIPS ...

The main benefits to building with SIPs are:

•Superior Insulation provides improved energy efficiency which reduces heating and cooling costs.

•Installation time can be reduced up to 60% against traditional construction therefore minimising overall onsite costs due to reduced; project management, plant hire, welfare facilities and most importantly labour.

•Factory controlled manufacturing provides a consistent and accurate engineered product allowing for easier and precise installation.

•Offsite manufacture results in less waste on site.

•Panels can be built in to large format walls prior to site delivery therefore reducing installation time.

•Up to 7 times stronger when compared to timber frame construction.

•They increase the available roof space, thanks to truss- free construction, enabling rooms to be created in the roof.

•The OSB creates a continuous surface onto which radiators, kitchen cabinets & Light fittings may be easily fixed with little or no additional support, and the OSB and insulation core are resistant to attack by mould and microbes, and provide no food value to vermin.

• Because there is no service cavity, the walls have a very solid sound when struck, and the jointing techniques used in SIPS buildings mean that the noise transmittance through the joints is reduced, which helps to reduce sound transfer between rooms.

Refurbishment Retallack

These are a few final images of the refurbishment project at a local holiday park. BWF installed a new Reception / office combined with a Farm shop.

Built along-side the new Gym room and the re cladding of the old façade on the existing building, I think you’ll agree give it a fantastic contemporary look, that compliments the surroundings.

West Polberro - St Agnes

Our project in St Agnes moves on with Lead faced metal finish to the gable end. This works in conjunction with the Canadian Western Red Cedar to create a clean but slightly industrial look ..Landscaping will begin soon to soften the surroundings and a decked terrace on the flat roof offers fabulous elevated views across the coastline.
